As teams around Australia prepare for the upcoming Rapidvite national finals in Sydney Rapidvites WA representative Michelle Beamish has become extra busy.
Off the track she works with many clients with the sponsor's products.
On the track she is preparing her small team of greyhounds that claimed a winning double at the Mandurah track last Friday night.
Beamish took over the training of Chrystal Journey (Master Havoc-Long Journey) in early June with the winner of 15 races put on the market after claiming more than $32,000 in stakes.
The four-year-old black dog was coming to the end of his career when Beamish thought that she could find a win or two from the evergreen chaser with a change of kennel and a fresh outlook.
After a recent placing at Cannington Beamish decided to change the dogs regime and take on the 492m Mandurah track where Crystal Journey had never won from five starts.
That all changed on Friday night when he crossed from box seven to defeat Billimite in the Pindan Free To All.
Earlier in the night Beamish also won with honest chaser Lady Debello (Cyrus the Virus-My Maimuru) who also had her first start back at Mandurah for a number of months.
The little bitch recorded her seventh career win from 42 starts with her tally also showing that she has also filled the minor placings 22 times.
Leading Mandurah trainer Linda Britton extended her narrow lead over arch rival Lexia Isaac with a quartet of winners.
Berry Berry Nice won her maiden at Cannington in 30.75 after qualifying in 30.56 and hasn't been threatened in her three starts at Mandurah because of her excellent box manners and brilliant early speed.
Britton also won with McFangus Reltub (Elite State-Katie Reltub) who recorded his first win since May when he won from box six.
This took his career record to 13 wins and 10 placings from 35 starts for owner William Butler.
Elegant (Go Wild Teddy-Twilight Rose) ended a run of four minor placings with a win in the Davis Carpentry Bridge Stake.
The fourth of Brittons' wins came through former eastern states chaser Klinger's Toll (Benny's Toll-Amber Phoenix) who led from box to record his third consecutive win at the track.
The young October 2006 whelped dog recorded two wins at Tweed Heads prior to moving to WA where he has five wins and a third from seven starts.
